Deadline reports that Ben and Justin Theroux, who penned 'Tropic Thunder' and 'Iron Man 2', are hard at work on 'Zoolander 2'.

There is no word yet as to whether Owen Wilson will return as free-spirited model Hansel, but reports that Jonah Hill is in talks to play the villain are "so hot right now".

Zoolander saw cameos from Will Ferrell, David Bowie, David Duchovny, Milla Jovovich and Jon Voight.

In the afternoons, I looked after my three kids (all under ten) while my husband worked.
